Transportation Funding Bill Pulled from Idaho House

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Legislature’s only transportation funding deficit proposal to make it to the House floor is being pulled back.

Instead, House leadership will present a revised funding version later this week.

Republican Rep. Greg Chaney of Caldwell tells The Associated Press on Tuesday the bill he co-wrote that would create nearly $70 million to $100 million in new transportation revenue will not get a vote on the House floor.

Chaney’s proposal had already cleared a House panel and was to be debated by the full House Tuesday morning.

A previous proposal backed by legislative leaders failed to get enough votes to survive a House panel.

Idaho lawmakers are nearing the final weeks of the legislative session. This means time is limited to pass a comprehensive transportation funding plan.
